Petshark: Talking Stick
Entries with the tag: ides of march
The Sharks earned two important points by beating Nashville, but it was a bigger win than two points indicates. Nashville is a good team, a strong team, a major player these days:
Darin Stephens @SharksStats: “Entering last night: Nashville 29 wins when scoring first, 26 wins when leading after two periods (both 5th in NHL). #GoodWinByTheSharks”
Beating the Predators was a big deal. The Sharks haven’t prevailed against anyone in that class for a while.
I think a lot of people associate the Ides of March with dreadful regicide, but really it’s just the middle of March. Also, the fact that we think of Caesar’s murder as a tragedy on a grand scale and the wrong thing to do… well, hey, we weren’t there. Neither was Shakespeare. Maybe Julius Caesar was a jerk.
For the Sharks, the 15th has come and gone and was not marked by a dagger to the heart, or back, or neck. No, it was more like a time for settling debts, time to get all those shrieking monkeys off their backs.
